Conservatives Attack Administration Over Ground Zero Visit

Conservatives have taken to the media to attack the moves by the administration following the killing of America's number one enemy - Osama bin Laden.


Only Republicans are allowed to be strong on defense and only Republicans are allowed to capitalize on the death of American civilians and servicemen.

The president visiting what these very same people referred to as "hallowed ground" to respect the dead and contribute to the closure of a ten-year-old wound is not "disgusting" and is not a "political victory lap." 

Was this a "political victory lap?"

Those who will defend President Bush over this photo will mention Bush's admission in his writing that he himself regrets the banner.  This is probably because the banner was a bit premature - at that time the president was in the middle of his own "political victory lap."

Hindsight is 20/20.

There is a big difference between the above picture and what happened this week (shown below).

And if that hypocrisy is not enough, Media Matters for America had detailed in a piece last year the criticisms President Obama from conservative media for not attending the September 11th memorial at Ground Zero.


  1. The Party of No's entire mantra just went up in smoke and they know it. For years they have been attacking the Democrats for being soft on defense. That is why they went ballistic over Clinton and the Balkans. But Obama has accomplished something ol' Georgie was unable to do. Congratulations President Obama, SEAL Team 6 and everyone else associated with the search and killing of this mass murderer. By the way, there is a new drink out, it is called the Osama. Two shots and a splash of water.

  2. I can never understand why these people can't give credit where credit is due. The president can't seem to do anything right with these folks.

    Also, great Osama joke! Took me a sec to figure out the water part but very funny!

  3. They are so terrified of a black President with ideas that they cannot admit one thing is done intelligently, quietly, and properly. They wanted to know about the bin Laden mission before it happened. They want to show pictures sure to inflame the Muslim sects. they want the President to tell all, or to be silent. They want him at Ground Zero and to stay in DC. President Obama has learned that he can NEVER please the right, and he soldiers on, and it drives them crazy.

  4. They also said they would not release a picture of bin Laden, but you know one would leak. Here is a link. Caution, it is very graphic:

  5. I was a bit skeptical of clicking the link but then I did. Very funny!

  6. Obama, when faced with a fork in the road, cannot take the right or the left fork without the right wing having a pre-conceived criticism of his choice, regardless of direction. And it doesn't matter that those pre-conceived are likely diametrically opposed to each other. That is the utter hypocrisy of the right.
